Hi, When I play Black Hawk dow or some other game like Medal of Honor , on line, no sooner have I started the game I get punted back to my desktop. I do not get an error message. Because I did not get an error message, I am assuming it might be a Graphics card problem. Any ideas would be really great.
My Specs are :

Gigagbyte MB 775.
Intel Duel core Processor 3.00 MHZ
ATI Radeon HD 4670 Graphics
Sata HD 500 Gig
Onboard sound Realtek
580 PSU

Hope I got these right. Thankyou.

I doubt a GFX card would stop your game. Do you have steam? Maybe you downloaded your games from steam and then something happened and your shortcuts don't work.

Yes HostileDonut, I do have steam. I also use a game from my EA download manager. and when I play the games I get punted back to desktop. But no error message comes up.I guess, I could try reducing the resolution in the games. and other things as well. but in all honesty, I would have thought my RAM was quite good enough. As my Graphics card and processor are up to 64 bit, I wonder if it might be better playing them on that system instead of 32 bit.

Hmmm. Try downloading again and re-installing.
